1. Online Geiger Counter maps
Thanks for the link. Just think, less than a year ago we were watching an oil plume's path. What will it be next year :(

Here are a couple of links for US radiation detectors

3. Do we actually have a "plume?"
Or is this a "if we have a plume, this is how it would travel" thing?

4. The graphic assumes a constant plume
Radiation monitoring at the site imply that it's anything but constant, but if you're going to build a model you have to start with SOME assumptions.

Note that the model has nothing at all to do with radiation levels. There just isn't enough information to guess at that. It's just a visual depiction of how the plume might spread and when various monitoring stations could be guessed to start picking things up.
